Tuniq 2 ATX Case
July 19, 2006

Installation:

Here you can see the case with everything but the fan duct installed. This is my standard test system. In the second picture you can see the system behind the side panel as I was testing it.

After the initial tests, I went to install the air duct. This is when I encountered a problem. The fan duct does not fit! While the fan duct does allow for large heatsinks, the DFI Expert motherboard does not have the CPU in the standard location. As you can see in the first picture, even when I switched to the OEM heatsink/fan I was unable to attach the fan duct. The fan duct covers about 1/2" of the cooler.

Testing:

To test the thermal properties of the Tuniq 2 ATX Case, I installed the following equipment:

AMD Opteron 148 processor @250MHz
DFI Lanparty UT NF4 SLI-DR Expert
eVGA 7900GT KO Superclock PCIe card
2GB (2x1024) OCZ Special Ops DDR
2x 80GB Hitachi Deskstar SATA 3Gbps hard drives in RAID 0
1x 120GB Seagate 7200.9 SATA 3Gbps hard drive
Memorex DVD/CDRW
10-in-1 Media Card reader
Fans: 2x120mm

Here you can see both the idle and the load temperatures of the CPU. As you can see, the Tuniq 2 does rather well without the air duct. It matched the temperatures I received in the Thermaltake Shark case in idle settings, and outperformed it by 1C under a load. If you can fit the fan duct in with your system perhaps you can expect even greater thermal performance.
